Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Our family stopped in on the way to Cinncinnati and everyone liked the food. Several choices of BBQ sauce, country ham, sweet potatoe casserole with pecans, delicious cornbread. Very good service, family owned. We would come back again. Blackberry cobbler was wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream.

“GREAT!!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The food is delicious!!! Have to try the "Old Brown"....very filling and delicious. The staff is nice and accommodating. The restaurant is decorated country and very pleasant. We liked it so much we came back on our way home on our trip. It was 8:45 p.m. and they close at 9, but they insisted we come in and sit down to eat. This is a charming place that won't disappoint you!

“Beautiful Old House Eatery”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I enjoyed eating lunch in this very old house that has been restored to a pristine state. I wish I could say the same for the food. It is not bad, just ordinary and certainly not worth the prices they are getting. The walls are festooned with all manner of bric-a-brac and is tastefully done. Service is fast and friendly. I am glad I visited but would not return.

“Quaint and delicious”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We stopped here on our way to Louisville based on reviews we saw on TripAdvisor. We are very happy we did, not only was the food very tasty, but the service was very good as well. The restaurant was very family friendly and they served good southern food. With a comprehensive menu and tasty options for adults and kids, we were very happy with our experience.

After we ate, we decided to shop upstairs in their cute boutique and we really enjoyed that experience too. All in all, great ambiance, great food, great service and great shopping, what more could we want for an affordable price?
